Hello and welcome to


There is a problem with the site so we cannot upload pics. If you send me your email address I can send you it via email. When you send me your address you need to send it [email protected]


Align timing gear and crankshaft according to the markings
  • Place the upper cover in position.
  • Turn the crankshaft clockwise until the markings, camshaft gear, inner timing gear cover and the crankshaft/gear wheel align with the oil pump housing.

Forget what I said about the email. It's against the rules of the site. Anyway here is the pic of the timing marks.
